  1. Hello! I'm kinda new to building historical models my main previous focus was science fiction models like halo and gundam. I decided to try and paint a baleo class submarine for my grandfather who served on the baleo class Entemedor. Unfortunately I have the model primed for painting, but I can't find a the colors I need for it. I don't run into this problem often when I paint my other models so I figured I would go here where others might have the same experience. I was wondering if any one has painted anything from this class and knew the colors used. If it helps I normally use enamels like
  2. This is my first model ship build, my first scratch build, and my first wooden model build. I have done plastic model aircraft in the past, but have been looking to move into something different. I have been reading a lot about sailing ships lately, Patrick O'Brien's Master and Commander, Forrester's Hornblower series, as well as some non-fiction books on the subject. I initially wanted to get into rigged model shipbuilding, but I realized that required skills I hadn't even come close to being acquainted. Then the idea of scratch building a model submarine presented itself, especially afte
  3. A few months ago I started on my new project, it will be my third radio controlled submarine. "Auguste Piccard" was built in 1963 by the famous inventor family of the same name, who also built the bathyscaphe "Trieste 2", which reached the deepest point on earth. Auguste Piccard was a electrically powered submarine able to carry 40 passengers to the bottom of Lake Geneva, where the World Fair was held in 1964. The boat is reported to have made over a 1000 dives, transported over 33000 passengers and was recently completely restored and is now displayed in the "Verkehrshaus" in
  4. Before President Kennedy approved operation "Frigate Bird," he wanted to be sure he understood exactly what the launching sub looked like. This model was built to show him the lead ship of the new ETHAN ALLEN class of SSBN. Operation "Frigate Bird," would be the worlds first and only launching of a fully armed nuclear-tipped ballistic missile. Upon studying the model Kennedy decided he needed to see the ship in person. Due to his back injuries climbing the ladders into the ship was not an option. Electric Boat fabricated a special cage that lowered the President into the submarine.
  5. Hello All I started Building the I-400 Class Submarine Model, which is a Japanese Submarine and were considered the largest submarines of World War II and remained the largest ever built until the construction of nuclear ballistic missile submarines in the 1960s. I got the Following Info from Wiki Each submarine had four 1,680 kW (2,250 hp) engines and carried enough fuel to go around the world one-and-a-half times. Located approximately amidships on the top deck was a cylindrical watertight aircraft hangar, 31 m (102 ft) long and 3.5 m (11 ft) in diameter. The outer access door
  6. "The Sea Miner" By Chuck Veit had intrigued me for a American first design during the Civil War of a actual torpedo launcher and how it was developed in secrecy and test fired along with the demise of the Engineer whom had brought the idea to reality. This wasn't the first of Human torpedo designs as there are a few before this one. Since no one had made a actual model of the "What is it" as it was named by the public when is was in full view on the docks as it was being built and tested and no one new how advanced of a weapon it was they were looking at. Simply incredible when yo

    Very stealthy former British SSK. Employees US made MK 48 torpedoes.
  10. Amati U-Boat 47 type VIIB After building the Syren I didn't want any more rigging. After building the Arno XI Ferrari hydroplane I didn't want any more brass nails in the deck. After building the Anteo harbour tug I didn't want another double-planked hull. What to build next??? A submarine! Amati offers an attractive kit of a German U-boat from 1939. You can get it for £225.00 from westbourne-model.co.uk, but I found one on eBay for much less. I've had the kit for 6 months and am finally getting started. What's in the Box The meter long box has two divided plastic bins on the sid
  11. I am awaiting a new project to arrive soon in the shape of an Airfix Trafalger class RN attack submarine, it is in 1 350 scale and will be based on one of those that was based at Plymouth Dockyard UK. I have worked on a quick drawing here it is not colour accurate as the real ones are generally a combination of very dark greys and different black colours. OC
  12. Hello all, This is my first build log on the forum, and my third ship overall. The first was a Dutch Navy contemporary frigate Zr Ms de Zeven Provincien, and the second a world war 2 submarine, Hr Ms K-XVIII. Both are radio controlled and both hulls were made with the bread and butter method. That worked out very well for these larger vessels but now I intend to build a much smaller sub and will need to be much more economical with space. So this will be my first hull built out of wood with planks on ribs. Hr Ms O-1 was a Holland-class submarine built as a p
  13. INTRODUCTION This is the build log for Hr. Ms. O 19, one of only two submarines in her class of the Koninklijke Marine (Royal Navy). Please forgive me for making this introduction very personal because she was part of my life and therefore holds a very special interest for me. My father, Opperschipper (Adjudant) Petrus W. van Warmerdam, was with her from about one year before her launch September 22, 1938 till his promotion to Opperschipper in January 1941. At the time he was placed on the build he had the rank of Schipper, with the added function of Quality Contro
  14. Little tough building this guy so far. It has nothing to do with the technical aspect of building the model. This brings back some memories of the USS BONEFISH which had a battery fire and burned out, with the loss of three shipmates. At the time of the fire I was on shore duty in Charleston serving in Engine build up of Navy Torpedo Facility. When we heard of the fire we knew our shipmate TM2/SS Ken Kutcher was aboard. We also knew they were abandoning ship. The theory about what the PBXN-103 explosive within the warheads of the MK-48 torpedoes would do when exposed to high temp
  15. Work-in-progress render of U-576, a Type VIIC U-boat found recently off the coast of North Carolina. The base NURBS model is not mine, although I cannot now recall where I got it. I am in the process of detailing, modifying and retexturing. The camouflage is speculative, based on images of U-576 published by NOAA. The boat's emblem, on the front of the conning tower, would likely have been painted out when the boat was on patrol.
  16. I was searching through the Library of Congress "Historic American Engineering Record" for information on ships and boats and came across this record. I had never heard of the Sub Marine Explorer. It was a submarine built in 1865, to harvest pearls. It was abandoned in Panama after a couple of years use. http://www.loc.gov/pictures/collection/hh/item/cz0044/
